What to watch this weekend on Hulu, Netflix, and more

May 29, 2020, 3:30 PM UTC

Between traditional television, video-on-demand releases, and a growing number of streaming services, it can be hard to keep up with what one should watch week to week. Fortune is here to help you keep track of new releases as well as the occasional older title worth checking out. Take a look at this weekend’s notable arrivals, a couple you may have missed earlier in the week, and what else is coming soon:

Ramy: The second season of the acclaimed Hulu dramedy will be available for streaming May 29. Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali, who apparently took notice of the show even before its first season was officially out, joins Golden Globe–winning star Ramy Youssef for this round.


Space Force: The highly anticipated Steve Carell workplace comedy, which also includes Lisa Kudrow and John Malkovich in its cast, arrives on the streamer May 29. But viewer beware: reviews for the series have not been kind.

Somebody Feed Phil: Phil Rosenthal returns in the third season of this foodie docuseries, which also premieres May 29, taking viewers to Marrakech, Chicago, London, Seoul, and Montreal.

As we mentioned last week, the new Hannah Gadsby comedy special, Douglas, is also now on the streaming service. And if you missed it in theaters this past winter, the much-talked-about Uncut Gems is also available to watch, in case you want to see what all the Adam Sandler fuss was about.

The Vast of Night: Fans of The Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, and even The X-Files will be drawn to this new feature film, a 1950s UFO period piece that got a drive-in theater debut a couple of weekends ago. The film, which is at least partially influenced by non-genre features like Zodiac, will be available to stream on Amazon May 29.

Apple TV+

Central Park: Three episodes of this musical animated series, from Loren Bouchard, Nora Smith (Bob’s Burgers), and Josh Gad (Frozen), will arrive on Apple TV+ on May 29. After that, a new episode will come out each Friday. Early reviews have been solid, with some calling it “heartwarming” and others saying it’s a surprising gem.

After already airing in the U.K., the three-part limited series Quiz makes its stateside debut on AMC, dramatizing a very British real-life scandal involving Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? The series will premiere at 10 p.m. Eastern on May 31, after the season finale of Killing Eve, which will be simulcast on AMC and BBC America at 9 p.m. ET.

Sunday movie nights continue on CBS with Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade at 8 p.m. ET on May 31.

Coming Soon

The new season of Dirty John, now subtitled The Betty Broderick Story, focuses on just that—the infamous divorce-turned-murder case. Amanda Peet and Christian Slater star in the second season as Betty and Dan Broderick. The series premieres June 2 at 9 p.m. Eastern with two episodes airing back-to-back. Read Fortune‘s interview with Slater here.
